Nominet has completed the rollout of DNSSEC for all second level .uk domains in its registry

Nominet states:

"The implementation of DNSSEC is a global initiative to add an additional layer of security to the global DNS infrastructure. DNSSEC enables zones to be signed, thus securing the integrity of DNS queries and helping to prevent spoofing, man-in-the-middle attacks and cache poisoning. The completion of DNSSEC deployment now sees the chain of trust established from the root of the Internet through to all of our second level domains:,,,,, and, by the presence of DS records in the parent .uk zone."
